HTC U11 will be unveiled in India on June 16. The company has already sent out invites for the launch event in New Delhi, where India price and availability of U11 will be announced. HTC U11 was launched in Taiwan last month. The highlight of the smartphone is its Edge Sense feature, that lets users squeeze the U11 to perform specific tasks. HTC U11 is sensitive to the amount of pressure users put on its metal frames, which allows them to customise actions such as send texts, open apps or launch Google Assistant etc.
HTC U11 is the third smartphone in company’s ‘U’ series, and the successor to company’s last flagship HTC 10. It comes in Amazing Silver, Sapphire Blue, Brilliant Black, Ice White, and Solar Red colour options. HTC U11 gets a 5.5-inch Super LCD WQHD display with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixel.
